There have been posts in the past about mics for the concertina. Here are my AKG C 416Ls attached to my Suttner. They are very lightweight, and are fed into an AKG B29L two input preamp. It is nice being able to play without a pair of boom stands surrounding you. I have a second setup like this for my Bb /F if needed, but find that most gigs allow me the time to pop the mics from one instrument to the next. I have a second set of mounting clips on the second instrument. They attach with bluetack and do not mar the finish.
That mic is no longer available. Any idea what has replaced it?

A model called the C 516ML. They use the same preamp, and a similar clip to hold to the instrument. I like these because they can be positioned not to interfere with hand position, and are very low feedback being a hypercardiod pattern.
How's the sound? I use a Microvox, which is efficient but scratchy.
You said you attach the mics with bluetack. What, exactly, is that? Does it mar the finish of the instrument? Can you make quick instrument changes? (I sometimes have to switch in the middle of a dance medley).
Thanks, this looks like it might be an improvement over the Microvox.

I think "Blue Tack" is an English/Irish trade name for what ( I think) is called Poster Putty in the USA.

These can be easily and fairly quickly switched between instruments (although possibly not mid-set)
The 416's replacement, the 516, has a bulkier attachment which, whilst more robust than the 416 which was always breaking, is more difficult to attach to a concertina - or at least is more cumbersome.
